Corporate Teleconference: Affordable Care Act

Speakers: Barry Friedman and Peter R. Orszag
Presider: Gideon Rose

Former Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director Peter Orszag and NYU Law School Professor Barry Friedman discuss the future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), how it will impact the country's health-care system, and why the Supreme Court ruled as it did.

While serving as OMB director last year, Dr. Orszag, now at Citigroup, argued in Foreign Affairs magazine that the ACA would repair the nation's health-care system and improve the country's fiscal situation: "In the end, there is no credible path to reducing the long-term fiscal imbalance in the United States other than directly addressing high-cost cases in health care. The best bet, then, is to implement and improve the provider-value provisions in the health legislation, not abandon them."

Corporate Conference Call: Post-NATO Summit Analysis

Speakers: Ivo H. Daalder and Rachel Bronson
Presider: Gideon Rose

On Tuesday, May 22, Ivo Daalder, the U.S. Permanent Representative to NATO, will offer his take on the Chicago summit. The immediate question is whether the alliance can withdraw its forces from Afghanistan while leaving behind a stable country that can stave off the Taliban. The long-term question surrounds the future of NATO as a guarantor of international peace and security.

Daalder, in the March/April issue of Foreign Affairs, writes that the organization's successful mission to help liberate Libya proves that the alliance can still be an essential source of stability, but adds "to preserve that role, NATO must solidify the political cohesion and shared capabilities that made the operation in Libya possible."

Corporate Program Teleconference: Global Economy

Presider: Gideon Rose

With concerns swirling over the prospect of another global economic slowdown, Ruchir Sharma, head of emerging markets at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, questions the current consensus view, which is still bullish on the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) and bearish on the West. Sharma, the author of "Breakout Nations: In Pursuit of the Next Economic Miracles" and the May/June Foreign Affairs essay "Bearish on Brazil," argues against analyzing emerging markets under catch-all acronyms. He points out, for example, that Brazil's growth is dependent on a shaky premise: high prices for commodities like oil, coffee and iron ore. Meanwhile, the dismal image of Europe overlooks fiscally responsible countries like Poland and the Czech Republic, whose policies, institutions, and private sectors could enable them to become real growth economies. Sharma will discuss which nations will serve as pockets of future economic strength, and what this all means for the global economy, including the big powers of the West.
